Desert Expanse

Living in the desert all of these years, I have certainly lost that initial appreciation for the awe-inspiring expanse that the Arizona desert offers. Instead I find myself pining for deep shades of forest green, sparkling ocean blues, and those brooding fall maroons, oranges, and yellows–none of which I find as I look out into a panorama of ruddy browns, and splashes of almost greens. Yet in some paradoxical dreamworld, that is the world of fashion, I find these desert colors to be beautiful and luxurious.

At Net-A-Porter $1085

This Rochas over-the-knee skirt adds some fashionable flair to colors we often see in southwestern palettes. The floral brocade is appropriate for all seasons in our desert landscape.

Saks, $1790

Miu Miu’s Monk Satchel is the perfect bag for any cow girl in the Wild West. The distressed look of the leather adds that extra bit of western authenticity.

Kenneth Cole, $88

These lightweight silky ruched ankle pants can take you from day to night even in midst of a heatwave.

Alexander Wang, $475

Alexander Wang is a genius. Oh right we are supposed to be talking about the clothing… We love the look of this Melange Jacquard short sleeve–so earthy digital!

Barneys, $705

Gianvito Rossi may be the one reason I have fallen in love with a shade of green other than forest… These metal mesh cap-toe pumps are on point in so many ways.
